Report of Library Trustees 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

A circulation of 12,872 books and magazines for the year 
1934 is a record pleasing to the directors of the Enfield Library 
Association and to all friends of our library, being a gain of 
2,621 over the year 1932. 

Interesting and valuable books, both non-fiction, fiction and 
juvenile have been purchased. We appreciate the gift of ten 
books of fiction from Mrs. Nathan S. Brock, one non-fiction 
from Rev. John S. Curtis and the book, "Iron, Blood and Prof- 
its," by George Seldes from Miss Nellie E. Brown. The num- 
ber of books now in the library is 9,408, non-fiction 4,470, fiction 
3,221, juvenile 1,717. 

We have continued our subscription through the agency of 
Mr. Robert E. Davis (a native of Enfield) for a large and 
varied list of magazines: Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Magazine, 
Forum, Popular Mechanics, Country Life, Good Housekeeping. 
St. Nicholas, Woman's Home Companion, Scientific American, 
Cosmopolitan, Review of Reviews, Ladies' Home Journal, 
American Boy, Scribner's, American Magazine, National Geo- 
graphic Magazine, Boy's Life, Outlook, Engineering News 
Record. 

It did not seem feasible this year to celebrate Children's Book 
Week. We hope the custom may be resumed this November as 
our children have a fine record for their number of reading cer- 
tificates. 



42 



The 18th Annual Library Institute of the division of Public 
Libraries of the State Department of Education, was held at 
Massachusetts State College, Amherst, April 2nd to April 4th 
inclusive. Our librarian attended the Institute and found the 
meetings interesting and helpful. 

Patrons of the library will again rind Mrs. Charles N. Down- 
ing rendering cheerful and willing service as librarian for the 
year 1935. 

An appropriation for the use of the library and the income 
from the dog fund would be much appreciated by the directors 
of the Enfield Library Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH 

President, Enfield Library Association

Report of School Committee 



1*0 the Citizc?is of Enfield: 

Your School Committee submit the following report: 

Nine regular meetings and one special meeting of the School 
Board have been held this year, at which regular and special 
business have been conducted. 

At the close of the school year in June, we lost two of our 
teachers, both excellent instructors. We wish for them all suc- 
cess in their new positions. 

We were, however, most fortunate in securing as their suc- 
cessors Mr. Mario Ciccone of Barre and Miss Elizabeth Rugg 
of Southville, both of whom come to us with very high recom- 
mendation, and who are doing excellent work. 

Miss Neumann, a very conscientious and efficient teacher, is 
still with us, and we fully appreciate the work she is doing. 

In May the usual Health Day program was observed, with 
cards for posture, weight and teeeth given. 

Graduation exercises were held in the chapel in June, at 
which time six pupils received diplomas. 

Educational week was observed in November in the different 
rooms witn exercises appropriate to the same. 

The pupils, with their teachers, in December sang Christmas 
carols in different parts of the town, and conducted a candle- 
light service in the church the second Sunday of the month. W T e 
wish at this time to express our appreciation for the excellent 
work Mrs. Beaumont has done with music in the schools. 



47 



Miss Austin, the school nurse, has achieved success in much 
she has undertaken and is deserving of credit. We are con- 
stantly adding to our supply, of excellent books, that the chil- 
dren may feel it a pleasure, rather than a task, to attend school. 

It has been necessary to have many repairs made to the school 
buildings this year. We however kept our expenses down and 
plan to do the same in the year to come. 

We ask that the report of Superintendent, School Nurse and 
Music Supervisor be carefully read. The committee ask any 
parent, guardian or teacher, who have problems relative to the 
schools which they wish solved, to visit the Superintendent with 
them. We can assure you one will always rind helpful, sympa- 
thetic cooperation in Mr. Knight. 

We respectfully ask that parents and guardians sign and re- 
turn promptly to the teachers the slip sent them, explaining the 
cause of any absence or tardiness. This is a state requirement, 
as found in the School Laws. 

The committee at this time wishes to extend to the citizens of 
Enfield its hearty thanks and appreciation for their cooperation 
and assistance in any way for the welfare of the schools, and the 
excellent support given by their generous appropriation and 
good will. 

Respectfully submitted 
for School Committee 

INEZ L. BROWN, Sec'y 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the Members of the Enfield School Committele: 

I submit my ninth annual report. This is the thirty-first re- 
port of superintendents of Enfield schools. 

As we close another year, it is well to review briefly the out- 
standing educational events of the Enfield schools during the 
past year. May I state, to begin with, that an outstanding 
feature is the stability shown in enrollment. For the past three 
years there has been a school enrollment of eighty or more. It 
is true that the number of pupils attending high school is nolt as 
great as it was three or four years ago, since many families hav- 
ing pupils of high school age have moved to towns with high 
schools, where the families in question plan to make permanent 
homes. 

Another matter of note is the change in the teaching staff. 
At the end of the year, Mrs. Anna Chase Spurr resigned, and 
Miss Elizabeth Rugg was hired to teach the primary room. 
Miss Rugg is a graduate of the Teachers' College at North 
Adams. We have every reason to expect the good work of pre- 
vious teachers in this room to be continued. To teach the upper 
grade room, the services of Mr. Mario Ciccone of South Barre 
were secured. Mr. Ciccone completed the three years' course at 
Teachers' College, Fitchburg, and obtained his degree of Bach- 
elor of Education from the Teachers' College at Bridgewater. 
Mr. Ciccone has secured the cooperation of pupils and parents 
alike, and we feel that the school .is indeed fortunate in the 



49 



choice of Mr. Ciccone as teacher. 

A third matter of felicitation is the fact that we have; experi- 
enced no interruptions in our attendance. Epidemics have been 
noticeably conspicuous by their absence. This is a credit to the 
vigilance of Dr. Segur, our school physician, and to Miss Austin, 
our school nurse. 

In the report of the secretary of the committee are mentioned 
some of the high lights in the school program during the year. 
Your attention is called to the reports of Mrs. Beaumont and Miss 
Austin. 

During the year the schools have been visited by Miss Scheib, 
Supervisor of Safety-First Education in Massachusetts, and by 
Miss Elizabeth Jenkins, Supervisor of Instruction, State Teach- 
ers' College, North Adams. Our graduation exercises were hon- 
ored by the presence of Mr. Harry Gardner of the Department of 
Education. Mr. Gardner was the speaker of the occasion. 

Mention should be made of the achievements of Enfield mem- 
bers of the Belchertown High school during the past year. The 
athletic record o£ Robert Sheffield was an enviable one, and ex- 
cites the admiration of all who are interested in basketball. An- 
na Konderwicz, a pupil taking the Household Arts course in the 
schools, was ;a successful competitor in a contest sponsored by the 
National Live Stock and Meat Packers association. Miss Kon- 
derwicz submitted a paper on meat cutting and serving, and won 
second prize in this district, a check for $50.00. Norman Heidel 
was the winner of the $5.00 offered to the member of the Junior 
class who made the most gain in English composition during the 
year. Edward S. Dickinson gained the George B. Jackson Sen- 
ior English prize. The Washington and Franklin medal, given 
by the Sons of the American Revolution, was won by Lucile 
Webster. To Bess Lytle was awarded the Munsell prize donated 
by Mr. and Mr. Nelson Holland, to be given to "the student who 
has displayed the most promise of maintaining the highest stand- 
ard of worth, measured by character, scholarship, general influ- 



50 



ence in the school, and ambition to succeed." This certainly is a 
list of achievements of which the people of Enfield may well be 
proud ! 

In concluding this report, I am glad to acknowledge the hearty 
cooperation of my fellow workers. To you as committee mem- 
bers, I am indebted for counsel and understanding, which, in 
turn, is greatly appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



Amherst, Mass., January 15, 1935 
Supt. H. C. Knight, 
Belchertown, Mass. 
My dear Mr. Knight: 

Following is the report for the Enfield schools for the year 
1934. 

The supervisor has made the scheduled number of visits, and 
work has been done as planned. 

The children gave a concert as part of the graduation exer- 
cises and presented a program in the church at Christmas time. 

Music appreciation has been started in the lower grades with a 
case of special records purchased by the school department. This 
work will be extended as the children are ready for it. 

Classes have been formed for elementary study of various in- 
struments. These classes are taught by Mr. Ciccone and Miss 
Neumann for a very nominal fee, and many children are avail- 
ing themselves of the opportunity offered. An orchestra will 
probably be organized in the near future. 

The supervisor wishes to thank the superintendent, teachers 
and school committee for continued and loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRACE D. BEAUMONT 
Music Supervisor 



Report of School Nurse 



To the Suferintendent of Schools:

to the homes. 

The following communicable diseases were reported : 
Whooping cough 9 

Mumps 1 

Pink-eye 17 

Ring-worm 1 

The pupils were weighed and given individual health inspec- 
tion five times during the year. 

Health instructions in matters vital to the welfare of the pupils 
were given by the teachers and the school nurse. 

In May the annual Child Health Day exercises were held. 
Health Tags issued by the Massachusetts Department of Health 
were awarded as follows : 

42 Physically Fit tags to those having no defects; 

4 Teeth tags to the pupils presenting a dental certificate, and 

44 Improvement tags for improved posture, weight or health 
habits. 

At the summer round-up in June, complete physical examina- 
tions were given five pre-school children. Notices of the defects 
found were sent to the parents. 

In September the annual physical examinations were given the 



53 



pupils by Dr. Segur, school physician, assisted by the school 
nurse. The report follows: 

Number of children examined 82 

Number wkh defects 66 

Defects found : 

Nutrition 3 

Posture 1 

Teeth 61 

Glands 9 

Heart 1 

Notices of defects found were sent to the parents. 
In October two children were X-rayed and given physical ex- 
aminations at the Chadwick follow-up clinic. Both were im- 
proved. 

In November a dental clinic under the auspices of the Hamp- 
shire County Chapter of the American Red Cross was held. Dr. 
Glade P. Hall was the clinic dentist. The report follows: 

Number of children examined 82 

Number of children with dental defects 61 

Number of children receiving care from clinic dentist 13 

Number of cleanings 6 

Number of fillings 33 

Number of extractions 7 

I wish to thank you, Mr. Knight, the teachers, parents and pu-| 

pils who have given me loyal cooperation in the health program 

during the past year.
